Default Sanding Chipboard Edges....tip!

Evening everyone! It's quiet on the forum tonight!! Am I the only one home being a homebody? It's a cold rainy night, so it's perfect so snuggle up and stamp! And that's exactly what I'm doing!!!

I just wanted to share a great tip when working with chipboard letters. I always sand the edges of the letters with my SU sanding block, but often times I can't get that big old block into the tight spaces/curves. So, just now, I marched upstairs to my bathroom, grabbed my nail file, and tried using that for the tight spaces. It worked perfectly, and I got all edges of the letter sanded!!! Whoo hoo, I love it when things work out like I want them to!

That's all for tonight, just tought I'd share my newest discovery with everyone !!!

Amy

Thanks for sharing. It is raining here also but has been snowing in the mountains all day so guess I won't complain.

Hey! I did that very thing last week! Worked out so well, wondered why it never occured to me sooner. Like two years ago. Ha!

Rain and snow here all day, too. And I have been stamping my heart out! That is my consolation prize for a grey and dreary day!
